Talking Restoration of a 1930 Chevrolet Phaeton

The restoration process for this car was very Interesting and challenging, efforts were made to use all original and genuine parts.
The process taught me a lot and also increased my confidence as a restorer.
  • Redone all woodwork. Used American white wood
  • All required parts were imported from the filling station, USA
  • All rubber parts were also procured from Steele rubber products, USA
  • Redone all nickle and chrome plating in Delhi by bright electroplaters.
  • All mechanical work was redone in our garage
  • Engine and Gearbox was completely overhauled.
  • Electrical changed to 12v for easy maintanance


This car won the award for the 2nd best restored car of the year at Jaipur Vintage Car Rally

Thoughts?

Congratulations on this beautiful restoration, Mr. Kapur.

The original OHV 6 Cylinder engine must be easy to potter around. Request for pictures on the restoration of the engine.

Cheers
